SYNOPSIS

When his B-24 bomber is shot from the sky over Yugoslavia, a young American navigator “Rockets” parachutes into one of the strangest love stories of World War II. Injured, he is guided to safety by an eccentric female Partisan “Maruska”. During 40 days and nights, the unlikely pair suffer the pursuit of Nazi patrols, poisoned water wells, death-defying diarrhea, near constant inebriation and repeated deflowering of a questionable virgin who awards him with love, wisdom and crabs…

MORE INFO

From critically aclaimed book by Fred Rochlin; "OLD MAN IN A BASEBALL CAP", DELAWARE PICTURES presents "SILENT WAR" an amazing tale of deep devotion, bravery and coming of age described by The New York Times as "Ribald, adult, morally complex, and occasionally starkly funny, and all the more stirring for being real."

Initially optioned by Disney, the book is currently under development by DELAWARE PICTURES as a major motion picture event under the screenplay adaptation "THE SILENT WAR". Director Catherine Pirotta, repped by Barry Hirsch, is attached to the project.
